NEW DELHI: Markets bounced back smartly on Thursday after a weak morning session. The Nifty finally gained 144.35 points or 0.9 per cent to close at 16,170.15. Broad market indices like the BSE Mid Cap index gained more, thereby outperforming the Sensex/Nifty. Market breadth was positive on the BSE/NSE.

Zooming into the 15-minute chart, we see that the Nifty found support around the 15,900 levels and rallied sharply from there. In the process, the index moved above the 20 and 50 periods MA. This indicates strength for the near term, said Subash Gangadharan, Senior Technical and Derivative Analyst,


The daily timeframe of the Nifty indicates that the index formed a hammer pattern. This is considered a bullish reversal pattern after a correction. Traders will now need to watch if the Nifty can cross the immediate resistances of 16,263-16,415 for the bulls to gain control, the above-quoted analyst said. Supports are now at 16,006-15,903.

“We recommend a stock-specific approach and recommend buying stocks from sectors showing relative strength. While we remain open to a pullback rally in the very near term, we must remember that the intermediate trend remains down. The bears would gain more control once the recent intermediate low of 15,735 is broken,” Gangadharan said.

Below are two recommendations from analysts for Friday:
